Drink Menu

LA’s best whisky bar. It is exactly what you expect from a whisky bar – the type of place where you’d want to smoke a cigar even if you don’t smoke.


2. Jacklope

Address: 515 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014

This is the “exclusive bar in the back of a bar” that you’ve always wanted to get into. It’s in the backroom of Seven Grand and it’s a complete separate bar with only 18 seats. They serve the drinks only one of three ways: neat, Japanese highball, or Old Fashioned.


3. Thirsty Crow


Address: 2939 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

It’s dark, it looks like a divebar, but you’ll find people dressed well and the bar is center stage – the way it should be. The whiskey selection is impressive, but the diversity of the crowd is even more impressive. There is no clear demographic – it’s truly a diverse mix of ages, races, professions, etc. Very few bars in LA have such a broad spectrum of patronage.


4. The Blind Donkey


Address: 53 E Union St, Pasadena, CA 91103

Not technically a whiskey bar, but known for a good selection of Whiskey drinks. Overall, a chill atmosphere with a formidable whiskey menu in Oldtown Pasadena


5. Ten Pound

Shoutout to the hypnotizing Simone, Ly & Natassja

6. Sassafras Saloon

If you want a touch of the Hollywood scene, but not too much commotion, you can check out Sassafras. They have some excellent Whiskey drinks.
